Ljuboten (Serbian and Macedonian: Љуботен (help·info)) or Luboten (in Albanian) is a peak of the Šar Mountains located at the border between Kosovo[a] and the Republic of Macedonia. Its height is 2,498 m (8,196 ft).
The majority of Ljuboten, the north side, north-west, east side and south east, are within the borders of Kosovo. On the Macedonian side of the peak there is a mountain house called "Ljuboten", as well as Shija Ljubotenska (English: Ljuboten's Neck), Kozja Karpa (Goat's Rock), Shiljast Kamen (Pointed Rock), and Rogacevski Korita.
Ljuboten is a popular destination with mountain climbers in Europe. The mountain is covered with pastures along with rocky outcroppings. Livadh Lake in Kosovo and few sheepfolds are near the peak. In wintertime there is usually over a meter of snow on the ground at Ljuboten. The mountain house at Ljuboten is located in the foothills of the peak and is connected with a road to Vratnica, Republic of Macedonia.

- Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received formal recognition as an independent state from 111 out of 193 United Nations member states.
